Malthouse Design Centre Launches Studio Space For Furniture Designers.
Islandbridge caught up with an old friend at the launch of the Malthouse Design Centre; in a previous life, Gerard had commissioned designer Shane Holland to create a limited edition sculpture to mark the ESB’s Millennium Celebrations, and we were delighted to have the opportunity to admire some of Shane’s newest pieces, alongside those of his designer colleagues, in a purpose-designed space off Dublin’s North Circular Road.
The Malthouse has been set up by designers Greg Tisdall (who Gerard knows from a previous, previous life, but that’s another story) and Arthur Duff, and aims to showcase the best of Irish furniture design through a dedicated enterprise centre.
Resident designers include Jennifer Slattery Textiles, Daria & Niamh, Duff/Tisdall, Jenny Walsh Design and Locker B amongst others, and the cooperative intend to host regular exhibitions to raise the profile of the Centre.
